When to bet in poker
Always bet when the odds are in your favor. The difference between a good hand and a bad one is so small that it doesn’t really matter if you don’t catch exactly the best card. If you are not sure about your hand, throw a small fraction of your chips in front of you to see if someone else bets or folds. If noone has anything, then your hand isn’t that strong and you should probably just stay out.

How often should you 3 bet in poker?
As a general rule, you should 3-bet as often as possible in a poker game. 3-betting is one of the best tools available to a poker player to gain the advantage over his opponents. 3-betting is an aggressive strategy that forces your opponents to act first, before they can determine the correct defence. By opening the pot with a small bet, you are forcing your opponent to react and reveal his hands. In some cases, this may give you the advantage of knowing his hand before he does. 3-betting should therefore be used as a tool to gain an advantage over your opponents. This advantage can be used in many different ways: by calling better Shots, by bluffing and by stealing the pot when appropriate. In poker, there are no useless plays; every action has a purpose and can be played for a specific aim.
